Here in the USA many states let you personalise your license plate for a very minimal charge. In New York State you can select anything from up to 8 letters and/or numbers that is not rude!

ELAN & SIMPLIFY are already taken!

I have a strong preference, but let's see what the crowd likes. You can also suggest something that I have overlooked!

How about NO MIATA or MIATANOT
I wish we had 8 letters for plates, we have to work with 7 letters here in South Carolina.

We only have 6 to play with, and it costs too much.
Plus I prefer something that isn't too memorable.....
But, going thru them,

MYELAN. Whose else would it be ?
EMA & K. Lost me here, reference to Mrs Peel ?
ACBC. Not many will recognise Colin's initials, they'll just mis-read it and think you're bi.
ITSAELAN. Yep, and owned by someone who isn't too hot on his grammar.
TYPE45. Nope, Bugatti had the "type" nomenclature before Colin was a twinkle in his dad's eye.(I know that's the official name but never believed it....).
LITENESS. The idea that a car could be lighter than another car would be beyond most
people's comprehension, so probably wasted.
72SPRINT. Much better as it shows the age, and how cool old cars can be.

How about, 1972ELAN, ELAN1972, 72ELAN, or ELAN72.
Or, if you want people to think you're Jay Leno, ELAARRN

Cheers, and :lol: :lol:
Ralph.

No Thanks, I'm tired of Miata references, we have the real thing!

It comes from "Simplify & then add lightness" a famous quote from ACBC, but you're right, probably too subtle...

Thank you very much, I just spat out my coffee!

No spaces looks busy but I added 1972ELAN, "72 ELAN" is taken (he had better be at LOG33!!), I've added "ELAN 72", you can change your vote if you like...
